Is there any body who find their car covered in light film of dust. My son has a black car so he notice it more

I've noticed my car being covered in dust, just being parked on Coronation Road. By the looks of things, everyone else in the street have the same issue.
Peter L
Yes I have the dust in Colchester Road, I believe it is brought across Southern Europe from the Sahara desert, all due to the Anticyclone covering Europe. It is a common occurrence in these conditions.
